"The Hurt Locker"- This film follows three American Soldiers in Iraq as they work to disarm improvised explosives. While the film is very suspensful and gripping, I do wish the script would have allowed for a bit more depth with the characters. Granted, we do get some information about some of the characters, but to me they felt too generic at times. What makes these guys tick and why? The film gets to the heart to the heart of the matter, but not enough. Still, this is a very intense film that has great cinematography and is a fantastic film depicting the Iraq War. Rating- *** out of ****
